. the answer is -- i have fbi crime statistics that come out of a year late, 2011, 20-plus percent crime drop in the last nine years. real violent crime because more guns means less crime. britain took the guns 15, 16 years ago. tripling of your overall crime. true we have a higher gun violence level, but overall, those men raped that woman to india to death with an iron rod 15 feet long. you can't ban the iron rods. they didn't do it, the tyrants did it. hitler took the guns, stalin took the guns, chavez took the guns, and i'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. it doesn't matter how many lemmings you get on the street begging to have the guns taken. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? that why you're going to fail and the establishment knows no matter how much propaganda, they will rise again when you try to take our gun. my family was at the core on both sides because santa ana came to take the guns at gonzalez, texas. piers, don't try what your ancestors did before. come to america, i'll take you out shooting. you can become an american
. with respect to who carried it out, that's an ongoing investigation. the fbi had sent individuals to libya repeatedly. we have some very good leads, but this is not something that, you know, i'm going to be at liberty to talk about right now. >> megyn: well, that was president obama roughly ten days ago discussing the terror attack in libya that killed four americans, almost four months ago now, including our ambassador. yesterday we learned the one and only suspect in custody so far has just been released by tunisian authorities citing a lack of evidence against him. so, where exactly are we in our fight for justice against the terrorists who killed our ambassador and three others? virginia congressman frank wolf is a republican and a member of the house appropriations committee. you're upset among other things, that this country, tunisia that released our one and only suspect got 300 plus million in aid, why are we funneling aid to them. >> we should not be and they're about to become a millennium and means advantages. we should be cutting off the aid. the fbi team was there for five wee

and oil and rigged containers to explode. james holmes' apartment is at the top and according to an fbi bob technician, he said that holmes told him that he took a boom box and remote control car and placed it outside of a garage car. he said there was a cd that he made. the first 40 minutes was silent to timed out to start playing very loud music. holmes hoped that somebody would come over to that trash bag and then see the remote control car and start playing with it. except that remote control was was not triggered to move the car. it was triggered to set off a device inside the apartment and that would trigger a much larger explosion. according to the fbi bomb technician, james holmes planned to have his apartment explode to distract and overwhelm first responders and he would walk into the theater a few miles away and start shooting. it's the kind of elaborate diabolical plot that seems to work for villains in a batman movie but in real life this diabolical part of the plan didn't work. and, wolf, investigators also testified today that in the month leading up to the shooting james
available to a wide variety of government agencies and passing that onto the fbi for inclusion in its database about who can and can not buy guns. things that would indicate mental health problems, what have you. i think there are also potentially looking at recess appointing the head of the atf, the alcohol, tobacco and firearms bureau, which hasn't had a head since 2006. those are a couple of things that the white house might be looking at doing sort of on its own. bill: we're about to dive back into the debt fight and the spending issues in washington. mitch mcconnell says that will take up the next few months of time. >> yeah. bill: so you start now to see the strategy as to why the white house would pursue executive action if they follow what the president said after newtown, that he is not going to delay on this. >> right. it's been interesting. we've seen the white house of course do this. for a white house that came in, a president that came in having railed in the 2008 campaign against sort of the overreach of executive power, he has shown very little restraint in using execu

of the boobytrap holmes left in his apartment. according to an fbi bomb technician, he mixed and created the explosive chemicals himself, including explosive powders and live ammunition, and homemade napalm. he saturated his carpet in gasoline and oil and rigged an elaborate system of containers to explode. >> you're talking about that he rigged that elaborate system to explode. the way he did that was really bizarre and when i saw kind of what he did and what he thought might happen, i don't know, it gave a sense of how deviant his mind is. can you tell everyone about that? >> reporter: absolutely. remember, all of this, he had hoped, would have gone off before he started shooting in the theater to distract first responders, take them to his apartment and then several miles away, he would be entering the movie theater. there were a couple ways to trigger these explosive devices, the ieds. one would have been by opening the door which would hit a trip wire and cause chemicals to mix, exploding on to the floor and causing the entire apartment to explode. another one which was i thought st
by the fbi and i cia couldn't get the results of the interview because they are worried about compromising the investigation. we are going back to treating crime. we don't know who changed the talking points to take al-qaeda references out of the talking points given susan rice three weeks before the election. we don't know anything. i don't want to hold up but i will until we get to the bottom of benghazi. in case the administration is listening to this program you are not going forward on these nominations until you share with the congress with really happened in benghazi. >> shannon: do you have support across the aisle at all for the proposition? i'm sure there are democrats who would also like answers to that question. >> i would be shocked if the democratic party would not at least join in the effort to find out what the president did during the attack, who did change the talking points. why are we now you back to a pre9/11 model of where the fbi can't talk to the cia. i hope they are interested in that. >> shannon: have you been given any timeline for the investigations wrapping up?
to the f.b.i. websites. this is all about guns. people say more guns, reason for violent crime is guns. look at the number. from the f.b.i. website, between 1992-2011, 20 years of data, murders and violent crimes have gone down by 49% each. 15 years of those, 1994, 192 million fire arms and 2,009,310,000,000 fire arms. doubling the fire arms. number of firearms went up and violent crime and murders went down. you have can't say guns cause violent crime. >> bob: so the it's more guns, less crime, not good police work? >> dana: or the opposite is not true. mine is also important. chief of staff jac jack lew was nominated as the secretary of treasury. a let of question about his signature. this is a grown man. this is his signature, doesn't resemble anything. president obama had a great joke about it today. bob and i were talking today, i realize bob was eating his lunch where the signature came from. checkbe this out. this is what bob eats for lunch. >> kimberly: that is why we have healthy snacks. okay. now we have a cute video here. if bill maher pays up. >> we have a new rule that sup
control laws, but to strengthen things like databases the fbi uses for background checks or getting states to share more information from criminal and mental health databases or even prosecuting felons who try to buy guns illegally or people who lie on background checks. would you support any of those moves? >> you have to look at each one one by one. a number of them, for example, the mental health issues, for example, i strongly favor, looking at those actions. if they're within the law and it's an appropriate executive order, i think the president has every right to do it. if it's not in current law, he can't do it by executive order and the congress would have to, i think, block him if he attempted to do it by executive order. it depends on exactly what they come up with. what i really encourage is that the vice president before he rushed around doing new things, go to chicago. chicago has very strict gun laws. it is also the deadliest city in america, over 500 people were killed in chicago last year. and i think the vice president ought to ask the question himself, why is it that all

is a dangerous thing to do, invites criminals into your home or outs police officers and fbi agencies or fbi agents rather. maybe that's understandable but there seems to be a cult of secrecy about gun ownership in america. the nra successfully lobbied to have it included in obama care a provision that prevents doctors from asking patients if they own a gun, and the nra also opposes a national gun database. what's the big deal? why not say how many guns you sell? or allow law enforcement to create a list of registered gun owners. talk back question today why the secrecy surrounding guns? facebook.com/carolcnn or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be back. [ male announcer ] this is joe woods' first day of work. and his new boss told him two things -- cook what you love, and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll work his way up from busser to waiter to chef before opening a restaurant specializing in fish and game from the great northwest. he'll start investing early, he'll find some good people to help guide him, and he'll set money aside from his first day of work to his last, which isn
of a former fbi agent van fishing in iran five years ago. robert levinson disin 2007. family is releasing disturbing new pictures sent from whomever is holding him, we believe. there is a "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. good morning, martha. martha: good to see you. i'm martha maccallum. intelligence officials believe iran is holding him as a bargaining chip essentially, something tehran vehemently denies at this point. the new pictures show a haggard levinson than in earlier pictures. this sign says help me, we must be excruciating for his wife christine. she released the pictures to urge the government to do more and not give up hope. >> diplomatically it takes a long time for each diplomatic request to go through all the channels. i know over the course of all these years that the government and the state department have tried to do that but have been unsuccessful. i feel there needs to be more attention to the case and that's why i'm putting the pictures out and trying to get everyone to, to be reminded that bob is still missing. bill: so will it help? david lee miller live in
me describe the scene inside the apartment. the fbi bomb technician said, there was a fishing line strung across the apartment at a level of about five feet. clearly intended for someone to walk into. it was attached to to a container of glycerin which was up on a shelf above a frying pan that had another material in it. and the idea was for the glycerin to mix with that other material and explode. also in the apartment, napalm, the floor was soaked with gasoline. there were canisters on the floor of some other type of explosive materials. and now it gets -- if that's not enough, it gets more bizarre. outside of the apartment, there was a boom box playing music. next to it, a remote control car that was also intended apparently for someone to go look at the music, maybe play with the remote control car, that would have also set off the explosion. given all of this planning, i think they're trying to show premeditation. also, there was evidence presented yesterday in the afternoon about him buying his ticket. he purchased his ticket online 12 days before the shooting. there was vide
is the f.b.i. as the consecutive order to lead the defense against cyber terrorism but companies have come up with ways to thwart attacks. favorite maneuver to feed wrong information to the hackers to make it doubted what they are dealing with, it confuses them and renderers what they get worthless. this is one effort to combat china and russia who is suspected of bringing down critical infrastructure in the united states. >> if this was physical world and paratroopers descended over silicon valley and guys repelled down ropes and went in and grabbed computers and ran out, there would be missiles flying but it happens every day in the cyber security space. where they come and steal everything and off to some other country they go. >> that intellectual property could include plans for weapons systems and products, track is torsion is one target. computer chips and anything that makes america competitive. the sophisticated software that attacks our critical infrastructure is hidden on home computers every day with american citizens to one-day strike. but the better answer the experts say is
on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been identified by the fbi, turned over by the justice department, and not processed. they could say prosecute people on their background checks. there are also the national instant criminal background check mechanism, is not fully funded by the federal government. but could be. and that would prevent people like the shooter at virginia tech who had a mental illness in his background, would have registered him. when he went to go buy his gun, it would have sent a red flag there is a mental illness in the background, maybe he shouldn't be legally able to buy a gun. there are things the federal government can do -- that the nra wouldn't necessarily disagree with. >> i totally disagree. there is no common ground in this argument. >> what? >> the nra, there is zero common ground. the national rifle association and most of the united states congress is against any sort of regulation of guns, period. i mean -- >> that is simply not true. david keen on this channel, on cnn, says he is in favor of not having people registered -- >> he wants the g
of troubled adolescents or young men, in my experience, with these kind of cases and in my research as an fbi profiler, i have found that there is no the a cause and effect. they did not cause violence but for these young people who were already contemplating carrying out acts of violence or acting out towards others in a violent way, these videos and very violent websites and violent movies can actually fuel what's already there. it can help them desensitize to acting out violently. it helps them erode at their sense of empathy and compassion. it is for this small group of people considering acting out violently. >> request there is this group of disturbed people you were describing, if there weren't violent v violent video games, isn't there something else that might push them over the edge? >> i wouldn't suggest these videos are pushing them over the edge. we don't look at whether or not they are looking at violent videos. violent behavior is very complicated. we look at, for example, are they saturated in a world where all they do is consider violence. in the research we did in the bureau
're not going to see a ban on military weapons in civilian hands because how would he enforce it? the fbi would have to go out and start arresting people. >> and again to the point here that john made, you got to, you can enforce what you have br you start to add new things. thanks very much to both of you. now, let's talk to a lawmaker with a plan of his own to stop gun violence. senator richard blumenthal of connecticut. senator, great to talk to you. it's been a while and i'm glad to see you. you're proposing a bill on ammunition background checks and i want to talk about that in a moment, but first, i want to talk about this issue. there are a lot of gun laws in america. brookings has put the number at 300. some have said it's as high as 20,000, but a department of justice study found that 80% of inmates obtained their guns illegally. so 80% of inmates for gun laws obtained their guns illegally. isn't the first thing to do to enforce the laws we have? >> absolutely right. terrific point and it's a point that i make constantly because my background is in law enforcement. i was attorney gener
resistance he agreed to an fbi interrogation. no comment from the fbi on the substance of that. his lawyers say he was in libya at the time but he was on a construction job. sources say while he is freed he has to remain in the tunisian capital, tunis, he is still charged with suspected involvement after terror organization, joon. jon: he is the only suspect arrested where does that leave the u.s. in this >> reporter: the fbi confirmed to me they have an ongoing investigation and they have agents on the ground in lib a they can't say much more than that. by all accounts this probe is not much more advanced since we were in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another says no one has been charged and that all suspects remain on the loose. the problem it appears very little cooperation on the ground in libya. we saw it in benghazi. security remains a big issue. militias are still strong. they are doing attacking of people that should be doing the investigating. so you see the problems. one suspect was questioned in december in cairo with possible links, both to the atta
counterterrorism director, jeff porter, he has briefed the fbi on the situation, and chris lawrence. our pentagon correspondent. chris, let me start with you. the state department says we have to do the job right. the defense department says the united states will be involved in mali. what are you hearing tonight as far as u.s. intervention? >> they're narrowing down the option. piloted planes to gather some intelligence is one option. drones, although one official told me those are in very high demand with things going on in yemen and afghanistan, libya and other areas around the world. he said look for possibly some air lift capacity. in other words, big cargo planes that would allow the french to get more equipment to where it's needed in mali, and refueling capability. in other words, the french jets doing some of the bombing, these american refueling tankers could pull up alongside them, and the french jets could refuel in air so they could go longer and further without having to come back to a base. >> interesting options. they're so eager to say there won't be mass combat troops on the gro
and affiliated police association of new york, fbi and new york state certified police firearms instructor, and spent 23 years in law enforcement on the city, federal and county level. and i can tell you that there's case law that came out in december of2011, judge solomon in new york supreme court, new york county, ruled in the new york times versus n.y.p.d. in article foia action that active and retired law enforcement officers, not the just n.y.p.d. and active and retired government employees must be redacted from the list that the n.y.p.d. turned over to the new york times in their foia action, that speaks volumes towards case law and may work towards the pending legislation in the assembly and senate which in the justification clearly says that the exposure of this information does the record holder, their families and the public at large a great disservice and puts them at risk. >> let me dove-tail off this. yeah, you can clap. [applause] >> you know, you're a lawyer, you argue for a living and you're obviously very good at your job, you've been doing it for a long time. sometimes t
all fbi agents are comfortable that the right hand gun with the right training is say formidable way to protect yourself. >> i appreciate your time. thank you. >> quick perspective and national archives, president obama issued 144 in his first four years in average. about average compared with other modern presidents. dwight eisenhower issued 275 in his first four years alone. as for the situation, 360 has been following this for years. we have an update. >> last year the chicago police department confiscated more than 7400 guns, more than five times per capita than in new york. chicago's gun laws are as strict as any in the country in fact you can't buy a hand gun in the city. where do they come from? many come from places like this gun shop in a nearby town. this is chuck's gun shop in neighboring river dale which is frequently the target of protests because of the amount of guns they sold that were used in crimes. . >> the owner of chucks declined our interview request. many of the guns from chuck's and other stores that end up on the streets are so-called straw purchases bought l
a lot of political muscle to do that, if you look at the fbi statistics, we have horrific events that occur with these guns sometimes mostly it is pistols and handguns that are involved statistically in the crimes, if you're going to attack the murders in this country would you attack those other guns. i'm wondering why you think it is they would like to go afr the assault weapons at this time. >> i think lz was exactly right. there are three different conversations going on, i think they have to turn it into one big comprehensive approach. if it's only framed as an assault weapons ban, it will have a difficult time going through congress. but, yes, you know, the president is going to have to spend the capital, he has it and he's going to have to spend it, i'm sure vice president biden who is pregnant the with this, this is his baby. in case we haven't noticed, he's already running for president, he's going to want something done. the issue is not going away, as cnn was covering the meetings of the vice president on the issue, they had to breakaway, because there was yet another
to do things to make sure the database of the fbi has all of the information so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force on thursday but did not mention a new assault weapons ban stirring speculation that the white house is dropping the proposal but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think there's going to be a ban on assault weapons passed by the congress. >> the nra plans an aggressive campaign and can point to what happened in 1994 when president bill clinton signed the last assault weapons ban into law. democrats lost both houses of congress to republicans. >> these become the only republican candidate in indiana with an f rating from the nra. >> last year the nra proved it was willing to go after the gop as well, running this ad against dick lugar. t
released by the fbi, december saw the most background checks for gun sales since the agency's current system was in place in 1988. overall gun checks surged by 19% in 2012 from the previous year. potential gun buyers have been flocking to gun shows in record numbers all across the country since the shooting in newtown, connecticut, possibly worried about new restrictions in the coming months. >> we know that there's going to be some new laws. so, i kind of put it off and put it off until now. now, you know, we went through and came down here to get what we wanted before everything is illegal. bill: gun shows on the whole facing controversy. recent shows in the northeast were canceled following the newtown shooting, also angering gun advocates. martha: let's go back to d.c. now and the battle over taxes and spending and the nation's crushing debt. top democrats are now signaling they want to go back and get more of your money in the debt ceiling debate that is coming, despite the fiscal cliff deal that saw taxes go up 77% of americans. nancy pelosi says it is not enough money really th
harzi, again had been arrested and held for several months. the fbi actually interrogated him back in late december. but as a witness to the attack on benghazi, not necessarily a prime suspect. when caveat to his release is he does have to remain near the capital of tunisia in case the court needs to get healed of 4i78. some of the cameras at the consulate did capture of the faces of some people, but very few have you questioned as suspects, primarily because the libyan government is to weak and some of the militia groups that may have been involved are very, very strong in that country. there's been a lot of criticism, you know, that president obama promised during the campaign to bring the killers of ambassador chris stevens to justice. obviously that hasn't happened yet. even though these are very different attacks, when you look back historically, the attack on the "uss cole" took about two years to get an arrest in that case. khalid sheikh mohammed was arrested about a year after the attacks on september 11th. so sometimes those arrests and investigations do take time, but one
debate, the fbi says background checks for firearms has soared some 39% in one month's time and that they hit a record high in the the month of december. while the government does not track how many guns are actually sold there are anecdotal reports from gun store owners and manufacturers that firearms are flying off the shelves. major manufacturer suggests that that trend is being reflected in their world as well and the background checks of course support that notion. and now to a murder mystery surrounding the death of a lottery winner. chicago resident kahn hit the jackpot last summer winning a million dollars on a scratch-off tickets. friends and family say he was ecstatic and 24 hours after state officials issued him a check for the winnings, police say kahn suddenly died a now, after initially they said it was of natural causes, they say in fact he was the victim of cyanide poisoning. trace gallagher has more, trace? >> reporter: and this one, megyn, caught the medical examiner off guard. when he bought that lottery ticket he just returned from a hajj pilgrimage, exce
in the database. when you buy a gun, and they call into what we call the nik system that the fbi runs, that runs it through all the databases, and says whether you can or cannot buy that gun, now, if you've been adjudicated to be a violent schizophrenic, you may not be on that list, and we think that you should be. a lot of the other proposals in the strictly gun area that the administration is making are what i call feel-good proposals. >> okay. >> for example, the high-capacity magazinese magazi. why do people need those. >> the ar-15s -- >> do you have an ar-15? >> i do not, but my daughter does. >> what does she need it for? >> a lot of people who have served in the military, like to shoot for fun at the range, and in competition, the same gun they learned on or something similar to the same gun. she was in the army, she learned on a military weapon, this is the semi-automatic civilian version of that. it's the only gun she owns because she likes to go to the range and she likes to shoot it. >> you heard general mcchrystal say last night on cnn, he doesn't see why these military-type weapons
